The Falcon Flash

Foskett Ranch Elementary Newsletter

May 1, 2019


Thank you so much for coming out and supporting our dances last weekend. Many thanks to our volunteers who transformed our multipurpose room into a neon wonderland. It was fun to watch the reactions on the students' faces as they entered the room. A special thank you to Mrs. Silhi and Mrs. Salli-Brown for planning and organizing the dances, as well as, to those who volunteered to make the evenings special for our students and their invited guests.

Each year the Placer County ACSA (Association of California School Administrators) charter hosts an event to recognize teachers who make a difference throughout our county. This year we are proud to announce that fifth grade teacher Monica Mars will be recognized. Monica is a gifted teacher who goes above and beyond to help meet her students' needs. She also supports Foskett youth by serving as one of the teacher chaperones for our K Kids group. Congratulations, Ms. Mars!
